It seems our morning poems have been missed by some, so Jane and I each have one for today. I was rushing around trying to get the manuscript mailed off to Hari Bhajan in LA, so had about 2 minutes, instead of 20, and this is what comes. I'm sure many of you can relate to this busy time of year. Even the rain this morning seems to be falling with urgency.
Enjoy, and try to ring a mindfulness bell in your head throughout the day.
I can ring a bell in my mind three times,
and pause for three breaths, and I do,
and this time of year is busy
and I juggle in a zoo -
the pandas watch, the monkeys, too -
this cage of entertainment winks
for more than me and you.
